    I use SPF50 and I still get burnt.  I also try to stay out of the sun midday and go in out of it as much as possible.

    Tan is nice, but for me,

    I always get burned first. Not a fan of tan-lines or sunburn-lines. :( I don't like it when my chest or behind is a different color, because it always ends up showing somehow. Plus, I'm one of those people that even when I get tan, I look pale haha, so it's not worth it. That's...
